Northern California Storm Impacts: Traffic delays on Highway 99, I-5 after crashes; latest rain totals

See below for live updates on road and weather conditions.

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE. I’M BRANDI CUMMINGS AND I’M LETICIA ORDAZ. IT’S A WEATHER IMPACT DAY, AND WE’RE TRACKING THE RAIN AND SNOW THAT’S BEEN COMING OUR WAY. LET’S TAKE A LIVE LOOK FROM A DRIVE FROM EARLIER THIS MORNING TOWARD THE SIERRA. THIS IS A LIVE LOOK FROM LIFE TRACKER THREE, WHERE YOU CAN SEE HOW INTENSE THE DRIVE WAS. THIS WAS ACTUALLY EARLIER THIS MORNING. TRAFFIC EXPERT BRIAN HICKEY IS JOINING OUR TEAM OF METEOROLOGISTS FOR COVERAGE ON THIS STORM SYSTEM AND THE IMPACT IT’S HAVING. BUT FIRST WE’RE GOING TO START WITH KCRA 3’S EILEEN JAVORA, WHO IS TRACKING IT ALL. YEAH, A COUPLE OF HOURS AGO, IN A PLACE LIKE STOCKTON BOY, IT WAS COMING DOWN THATRILLIONAIN WAS REALLY GOOD. AROUND 5 A.M. THIS MORNING. LOOK HOW MUCH IT’S IMPROVED. WE HAVE CLOUDY CONDITIONS WITH SOME SPOTTY RAIN NEARBY, BUT AS YOU LOOK AT THE FORECAST IN THE NEXT 12 HOURS, WE STILL ARE INCLUDING THE CHANCE OF SHOWERS IN THERE. NOW, I DON’T THINK IT’S GOING TO BE AN ALL DAY RAIN ANYWHERE. A LOT OF DRY TIMES MIXING IN, BUT EVEN IN THE AFTERNOON WE COULD SEE A COUPLE OF DOWNPOURS AS STILL SOME MOISTURE LINGERS OVER NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. SO LOOKING AT DOPPLER RADAR STILL, THIS LINE OF RAIN THAT WAS OVER STOCKTON MODESTO EARLIER. IT’S NOW SHIFTING SOUTH. AND LOOK AT THAT GOOD RAIN THAT WAS OVER YUBA CITY INTO THE MARYSVILLE AREA. WHEATLAND HIGHWAY 20. THAT WAS REALLY HEAVY RAIN THAT WENT THROUGH AROUND 2 OR 3:00 THIS MORNING, PUTTING DOWN A COUPLE OF INCHES OF RAIN IN SOME SPOTS, AND METEOROLOGY HEATHER WALDMAN IS GOING TO BE COMING UP SOON TO TELL US JUST HOW MUCH RAIN CERTAIN LOCATIONS GOT. STILL, THE RAIN CONTINUES IN NEWMAN AND LIVINGSTON UP TOWARDS THE MOTHERLODE THIS MORNING, BUT AGAIN, THIS IS SINKING SOUTHWARD AND STILL THE SNOW IS LINGERING GENERALLY ABOVE 6000FT, TAPERING IN INTENSITY ALONG INTERSTATE 80. BUT THERE’S HIGHWAY 50. WE STILL HAVE SOME SNOW FALLING HERE, SO GENERALLY DO EXPECT SCATTERED SHOWERS TO CONTINUE INTO THE AFTERNOON UNDER MOSTLY CLOUDY SKIES AND IN THE FOOTHILLS. WE WILL CONTINUE TO SEE THE CHANCE OF SHOWERS AS WELL, AND THAT SNOW LEVELS SHOULD BOUNCE AROUND AGAIN. THAT 6000 FOOT MARK WITH CHAIN CONTROLS POSSIBLE THROUGH MOST OF TODAY. AGAIN, THE BEST SNOW WOULD FALL THIS MORNING WITH SEVERAL MORE INCHES OF POSSIBILITY AS ESPECIALLY AS WE GO THROUGH THE MORNING TIME. JUST TAKE IT SLOW ON THE ROADWAYS. MIGHT FIND SOME STANDING WATER IN SOME SPOTS WHERE WE HAVE THAT HEAVIER RAIN. HERE’S BRIAN NOW WITH AN UPDATE ON THE ROADWAYS AND BIG MESS JUST BECAUSE OF ALL THE RAIN IN THE COLLISION. YEAH, SOUTHBOUND I-5 ESPECIALLY. THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE BACK AT WEST EL CAMINO YOU CAN SEE THE TRAFFIC HERE HEAVY ACROSS ALL LANES, ALL BECAUSE IT’S ALL BEING FUNNELED DOWN TO ONE LANE RIGHT AROUND RICHARDS BOULEVARD. BUT YOU CAN SEE THAT BACKUP ALL THE WAY BACK UP INTO NATOMAS. AND THEN YOU CAN SEE WESTBOUND INTERSTATE 80. NOW FEELING THE EFFECTS OF THAT AS FOLKS TRY TO FIND A DETOUR. AND THEN ALSO EASTBOUND 50 COMING BACK INTO DOWNTOWN, SOME INCREASED TRAFFIC THERE. SO WHY IS THIS ALL HAPPENING? WE HAD A JACKKNIFE BIG RIG EARLY THIS MORNING AND WITH MORE ON THE CLEANUP, HERE’S ERIN HEFT LIVE ALONG I-5. YEAH. BRIAN STANDING IN THE MIDDLE OF SOUTHBOUND I-5 RIGHT NOW. YOU CAN SEE THE QUICK DRY SPREAD ACROSS SEVERAL LANES HERE, BUT ABSOLUTELY NOTHING QUICK ABOUT THIS INCIDENT. THIS STARTED AT 430 THIS MORNING JUST AFTER IT WAS A JACKKNIFE. BIG RIG. IT TOOK AN HOUR FOR THIS SITUATION TO BE DEEMED A HAZMAT SITUATION BECAUSE OVER 100 GALLONS OF FUEL HAD SPREAD ACROSS INTERSTATE FIVE, AND IF WE FLIP THE CAMERA AROUND, YOU CAN JUST SEE HOW MUCH TRAFFIC IS STILL BACKED UP. RIGHT NOW, IT IS ONE LANE THAT IS VERY INTENSE, CAUSING MILES AND MILES AND MILES OF BACKUP. CHP STILL ON SCENE. THE CLEANUP REALLY JUST GOT UNDERWAY IN THE LAST 40 MINUTES OR SO, AND AGAIN, ABOUT 150 GALLONS OF FUEL SPILLING ONTO THE ROADWAY. AND YOU CAN SEE THESE STREET SWEEPERS JUST ARRIVED MIXING IT INTO THE GROUND, TRYING TO MAKE THIS AMOUNT OF FUEL GO AWAY SO THAT THEY CAN REOPEN. I-5 SOUTHBOUND. BUT RIGHT NOW, I-5 SOUTHBOUND, MOST NEAR RICHARDS BOULEVARD DOWN TO ONE LANE. AND IT IS NOT WRAPPING UP ANY TIME SOON. BRIAN, WHAT ARE THE OTHER INCIDENTS ON THE ROAD? AND OF COURSE, TRACTION AND ISSUE OUT THERE WHEN YOU HAVE A OIL SPILL ACROSS THE FREEWAY, HIGHWAY 50. LOOKING GOOD. RIGHT NOW WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF SLOWING RIGHT NOW THROUGH 65TH STREET, WESTBOUND 80 UP TO THE SPLIT. LOOKING GOOD, BUT CAP CITY FREEWAY SLOW ON THAT SOUTHBOUND SIDE AS YOU MAKE YOUR WAY INTO DOWNTOWN. ON THAT STRETCH, WE’LL HEAD A LITTLE BIT FURTHER TO THE SOUTH. NOW, I-5 AND 99. LOOKING GOOD. 99 RIGHT AROUND FLORIN ROAD. WE’RE SEEING SOME SLOWING. AND THEN HIGHWAY 50 AT BASS LAKE ROAD. WE HAVE AN OVERTURNED PICKUP TRUCK. IF YOU’RE COMING IN FROM EL DORADO HILLS. THE OTHER ISSUE RIGHT NOW IN MODESTO AREA, WE HAD A BIG RIG HIT THE CENTER DIVIDE RIGHT AROUND KANSAS AVENUE. THAT’S CAUSED BIG DELAYS ON THAT SOUTHBOUND SIDE. IF YOU’RE GOING NORTHBOUND FROM MODESTO INTO MANTECA, THAT’S CURRENTLY 18 MINUTES GOING ACROSS THE TRACY TRIANGLE, 36 MINUTES THERE, 32 MINUTE RIDE ON 580. AND THEN AS WE TAKE A LOOK AT OUR FREEWAYS HERE IN SACRAMENTO, HIGHWAY 50, A 13 MINUTE RIDE OUT OF RANCHO CORDOVA, IT’S IN THE RED NOW. INTERSTATE 80, ROSEVILLE TO THE SPLIT. NINE MINUTES. REALLY NO DELAYS THERE. 599 OUT OF ELK GROVE. ALSO RUNNING AT THE SPEED LIMIT. BUT BE CAREFUL. BACK TO YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH, BRIAN. AND WE’VE SEEN SOME BIG BACKUPS AT TIMES IN THE MODESTO AREA WITH THE WET WEATHER IMPACTING THE ROADS RIGHT NOW, KCRA 3’S MIKE TESELLE HAS BEEN DRIVING IN THE AREA THIS MORNING. MIKE, WHAT ARE YOU SEEING? YOU KNOW, BRIAN, WE’RE JUST TALKING ABOUT KANSAS HERE IN MODESTO. SO I WANT TO SHOW YOU SOMETHING OFF THE FREEWAY. WE’RE ON EMERALD AVENUE APPROACHING THE STOPLIGHT, WHICH IS CANVAS, AND WATCH THAT WHITE TRUCK HE IS RIGHT NOW DRIVING INTO WHAT WE’RE SEEING IN THIS AREA. AND THAT IS SOME LOCALIZED ROADWAY FLOODING, ESPECIALLY ALONG THIS KANSAS STRETCH HERE. WE’RE GOING TO TURN RIGHT ONCE WE GET UP HERE. AND YOU KNOW, THE PARKING LOT ALSO SUBMERGED IN WATER AS WE HEAD TOWARDS HIGHWAY 99. NOW OUT ON 99. TAKE A LOOK AT THIS VIDEO. BECAUSE THIS IS THE BACKUP. WE WERE STUCK IN FOR ABOUT 47 MINUTES THIS MORNING. JUST TRYING TO GET FROM THE NORTH END OF MODESTO THROUGH TO THE SOUTH END HERE AT KANSAS, WHERE THIS BIG RIG LOST, UH, CONTROL AND HIT THAT CENTER DIVIDER. THAT CAUSING A HUGE SLOWDOWN THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE MORNING. AND THATRILLIONEMAINS FANS HERE JUST TRYING TO GET THROUGH MODESTO. IF WE COME BACK OUT HERE LIVE NOW, WE’RE ABOUT TO GO OVER TO HIGHWAY 99. BUT AGAIN, THE THING TO NOTE HERE IS THE RAIN WAS SO HEAVY EARLIER THIS MORNING OVER SUCH A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME THAT THERE ARE SPOTS WHERE THERE IS LOCALIZED FLOODING ON THE ROADWAYS, INCLUDING HERE ON KANSAS THIS MORNING, IN FACT, JUST ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THAT STOPLIGHT, YOU SEE AHEAD OF US, THAT’S ANOTHER SPOT WHERE YOU’RE GOING TO SEE LANES SUBMERGED IN WATER. BOTTOM LINE HERE IN THE MODESTO AREA, WHETHER YOU’RE DRIVING SLOW OR HAVING TO GO SLOW THROUGH THE MINOR LOCALIZED FLOODED AREAS. EITHER WAY, IF YOU’RE BEHIND THE WHEEL THIS MORNING, JUST TAKE IT SLOW AND BE PREPARED FOR WHAT’S IN FRONT OF YOU. BECAUSE AS WE APPROACH HERE, YOU’RE GOING TO SEE THIS WHITE TRUCK JUST ABOUT TO AVOID AGAIN, FLOODED ROADWAY THERE ON THE RIGHT SIDE FROM ALL THAT RAIN FROM EARLIER THIS MORNING. THIS A LIVE LOOK AT A VERY WET MODESTO THIS MORNING. EVEN THOUGH THE RAIN HAS PRETTY MUCH STOPPED FALLING. MIKE TESELLE KCRA THREE NEWS. AND WE SAW A DECENT AMOUNT OF RAIN LAST NIGHT AND INTO THIS MORNING. KCRA 3 METEOROLOGIST HEATHER WALDMAN JOINING US NOW WITH A LOOK AT THOSE RAIN TOTALS THAT WE’RE SEEING SO FAR. HEATHER. YEAH, WE’RE GOING TO START OFF IN THE SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY. NOT TOO FAR FROM WHERE MIKE WAS JUST DRIVING AROUND. SO THESE ARE 24 HOUR RAINFALL TOTALS. MODESTO WITHIN THE LAST 24 HOURS, PICKING UP 1.35IN OF RAIN. A LOT OF THAT REALLY COMING WITHIN THE LAST SIX HOURS. STOCKTON CLOSE TO AN INCH AND A HALF OF RAINFALL ABOUT AN INCH ON THE ALTAMONT HEADED WESTBOUND INTO THE EAST BAY AND THEN EASTBOUND ALONG HIGHWAY FOUR ABOUT AN INCH AND A QUARTER WITHIN THE LAST 24 HOURS. ALSO, SOME BIG NUMBERS NORTH OF SACRAMENTO UP INTO THE YUBA AND SUTTER COUNTY AREAS. WHEATLAND PICKING UP ALMOST 3.25IN OF RAINFALL IN THE LAST 24 HOURS. MOST OF THAT COMING SINCE MIDNIGHT. WE HAD AN INTENSE BAND THAT KIND OF SET UP REALLY PRETTY MUCH OVER SOUTHERN YUBA COUNTY, AND THAT WAS ABOUT IT. YOU GO NORTH UP TO MARYSVILLE, 2.37IN OF RAIN, BUT YOU HEAD SOUTH ON 65 TOWARDS THE LINCOLN AREA. THERE RAINFALL AMOUNTS ABOUT A HALF AN INCH WITHIN THE LAST 24 HOURS. SO WE DO STILL HAVE A FLOOD ADVISORY. THIS IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON. IT DOES INCLUDE YUBA CITY. IT INCLUDES WHEATLAND ALL THE WAY UP INTO GRASS VALLEY AND SWEETLAND AS WELL, WHERE RAINFALL AMOUNTS UP INTO THE FOOTHILLS ANYWHERE FROM 2 TO 3IN. THIS MORNING, A SECOND FLOOD ADVISORY ALSO UNTIL NOON THAT CONTINUES FOR PARTS OF SAN JOAQUIN STANISLAUS, AS WELL AS CALAVERAS COUNTY UNTIL MIDDAY TODAY. MEANWHILE, IN THE SACRAMENTO AREA, RAINFALL NUMBERS A LOT LOWER AT THE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. JUST OVER HALF AN INCH OF RAIN IN THE PAST 24 HOURS. ELK GROVE ALSO COMING IN CLOSE TO HALF AN INCH. SO REALLY TWO MAIN AREAS WHERE WE SAW THOSE BIG RAINFALL TOTALS OVER THE LAST DAY. A FEW SHOWERS LEFT OVER FOR THE REST OF TODAY, BUT WE WON’T BE TACKING ON TOO MUCH MORE IN THE VALLEY. BACK TO YOU, HEATHER. THANK YOU. AND YOU CAN TRACK THIS SYSTEM ON OUR KCRA THREE APP AND YOU CAN SEE WHAT’S HAPPENING IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD. IT’S FREE TO DOWNLOAD.

Northern California Storm Impacts: Traffic delays on Highway 99, I-5 after crashes; latest rain totals

See below for live updates on road and weather conditions.

Expect a wet commute on Monday morning after a soaking rain overnight across Northern California. Chain controls are in effect in the Sierra as snow continues to fall and crashes are causing some Sacramento and Modesto area traffic delays. The California Highway Patrol in Modesto says to avoid southbound Highway 99 because of flooding on the roadway north of Tuolumne Boulevard and a big rig crash at Kansas Avenue.Meanwhile, there are big delays as crews work to clean up fuel from a jackknifed big rig on southbound I-5 at J Street. (See below for live updates on road and weather conditions this morning.)Rain amounts overnight were variable with the heaviest rain in Sutter, Yuba and San Joaquin counties. On Monday morning, a flood advisory is in effect for portions of the San Joaquin Valley and Northern Sacramento Valley because moderate to heavy rain through sunrise could cause standing water in low-lying and poor drainage areas. Rain will become more showery in the Valley through the morning and there’s still a chance the region could see a couple of showers in the afternoon. The best Sierra snow accumulations Monday morning will be above 6,000 feet and that will also taper in intensity through the late morning. Tuesday will be dry with morning fog. Wednesday will have a few light showers and perhaps several more inches of snow in the Sierra.Get California Storm ReadyDownload our app for the latest breaking news and weather alertsWatch our nowcast live coverage of the storm through 10 a.m.Track live California Doppler radarSee our live traffic mapChain controls?
